The Buleleng regency administration has said it will build a road race circuit on 7.5 hectares in Kubutambahan district. “ We have prepared the location and have completed the land acquisition,” Regent Putu Agus Suradnyana said on Thursday, adding that the location for the circuit was close to the site where Buleleng airport would be built.
Building the road race circuit is aimed at accommodating the needs of automotive enthusiasts for a designated location for a race, as well as to campaign for road safety. The regency has seen traffic accidents caused by illegal racing on public roads. Buleleng Police chief Beny Arjanto welcomed the regency administration’s plan to build the circuit, saying it could minimize traffic accidents caused by illegal racing. The administration has yet to disclose the amount of budget it would allocate for the project that is targeted to complete by next year.
